I still can't help yelling out "Duracell!" anytime someone on Star Trek says "Energize", but I'm a total geek, so please ignore that. Laughing Duracell also happens to have been my battery choice for years.


The rescue squad I used to run with used only Duracell batteries in the equipment. Nobody ever really talked about it, they just bought Duracells. That was all the comercial I needed.

I hate the Energizer Bunny. A lot. I'd like to grab a shotgun and go out every year during Rabbit Season and hope to find that little pink bastard one day. Hopefully, the Energizer bunny will be cuddled up to the "Can you hear me now" guy and I can get two trophies at once. Mind you, it's not the ACTOR, it's that damned character.

I dislike the comercials that make it look like most people are incapable of performing a simple act, like making cookies, walking or breathing without the NEW WONDER PRODUCT only $19.95! It's like they're saying "We know you're a low grade moron, so here's a device to make your stupidity less painfully blatant." Did you see the one for the pancake maker? "You flip, but they flop. You're a drooling, fish-brained moron. Don't worry, send us $19.95 and we'll send you a frying pan to make you suddenly turn into a GOD OF COOKING! Your IQ will go up 150 points, your family will love you and your home will magickally self-clean!!" OK, maybe flipping pancakes isn't the easiest thing in the world (for everyone), but I really feel like the ads are talking down to people.

Those damned Girls Gone Wild commercials. The epitome of vulgarity. Why is it that when every one of those hoes pull their tops up, just like pavlov's dog, they automatically stick their tongues out. What is THAT all about?


Surgicial connection between the shirt and tongue. It also makes it almost impossible for them to totally remove the shirt unless they can expose their tonsils at the same time.

coffee_sloth, YES!!! The commercials that make us look like idiots, inept, incompetent. Those are the reason I started this thread. People are too slow and stupid to flip a pancake, floss their teeth, use a vacuum cleaner. Grrrrrrrrr. These commercials are infuriating!!! Oops. I think I said that already.

Well, I have to admit I have had trouble flossing in the past, due to dyslexia and the fact the mirror shows me a reversed image....But I can run a vacuum cleaner very well.

I bought a Reach flosser and it works great -- still don't like the commercial and you're right that most of them are presented as if we should know better than not to need their product. In this case, they're forgiven and in most cases they are quickly muted if I'm on broadcast TV.
